ALBERNI VALLEY TRANSITION TOWN SOCIETY
Alberni Valley Transition Town Society is born from the Transition Town movement that started in the late 2000s. We are dedicated to finding ways to encourage local action to reduce CO2 emissions, energy use, and promote resiliency through local food initiatives and working toward a much more local economy. The Transition model is of a grassroots, democratic model where initiatives are created from the ground up by people interested in taking on a project or topic so AVTTS acts as an umbrella organization for a number of different groups. We were one of the first Transition Town’s in Canada in 2009.
Our current projects/affiliated groups include:
Alberni Valley Food Group/Food Hub
Cycle Alberni (cycling advocacy)
Ocean Friendly Port Alberni (reducing use of single use plastics)
Alberni Climate Action group
Fledgling: Watershed Action Group...
